Poem/Prayer for Worship

Poem/Prayer for Worship by Thom Shuman
a computer, a daily planner, homework assignments, the commute back and forth: we have no problem setting these aside in order to follow you, Pilgrim Jesus. but picking up your grace, and generously offering it to those who are so stingy towards us; taking up your mercy and forgiving everyone who has hurt us; stooping down to lift up those we've nudged aside in our eagerness to be first in line? we're trying to catch up to you, but our prejudices, our fears, our arrogance, our doubts hold us back. wait for us, please! so we can follow you to life.
